Synopsis of Komi-san wa, Komyushou desu
It’s Shouko Komi’s first day at the prestigious Itan Private Institute, and she’s already become the Madonna of the school. With her long black hair and her tall and elegant appearance, she captures the attention of anyone who crosses her path. However, there is a problem: despite her popularity, Shouko is terrible at communicating with others. Hitohito Tadano is your typical high school boy. With his life motto of “reading the situation and making sure to stay out of trouble”, he quickly discovers that sitting next to Shouko has made him the enemy of everyone in his class. One day, accidentally passed out, Hitohito wakes up to the sound of Shouko’s “meow”. He lies saying that he didn’t hear anything, which makes Shouko run off. But before she can escape, Hitohito guesses that Shouko isn’t able to talk to others easily; in fact, he has never been able to make a single friend. Hitohito decides to help Shouko in her goal of making a hundred friends with her so that she can overcome her communication disorder. Fountain: Twitter
